If you're looking for a quick, easy to make, mouthwatering treat, and you like peanut butter, chocolate, and dancing tastebuds, this is for you!

You guys know how I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate together by now, right?

I don't mean the store bought, found at the aisle next to the cashier's checkout kind!

I like the ones that have love in every bite. My recipes are specialized with love and use only organic, whole foods to come together to delight the senses!

Not that I was ever really a big fan of packaged candies but especially now especially considering my OD story in HK I could not eat a peanut butter cup from the orange plastic it comes in- that little 'puck' of sugar would have me keeled over, having a sugar attack much like my caffeine overdose that ruined most of my trip a couple of weeks ago!

Good thing I have found a really yummy snackable treat to take the place of the cravings of those flavors!

l know sometimes my recipes can be a bit extravagant and take a bit more time than everyone has (as per my momma's critique) so, here are some easy ones that are just as delicious as any three layer, ice cream cake or 4 hour kitchen venture I share!

Would you like to give them a taste to see the difference for yourself?

These are one of the easiest things I make and also one of the most loved! There is always beauty in simplicity and this carried just the right level of low maintenance for anyone to try!

Due to the protein and convenience of these little numbers, I make variations of these on a constant rotation, of course along with my other vegan, gluten free, healthy confectioneries that I share here with you so if you haven't seen my blog yet and you like things that not only taste sweet but actually are sweet, there is surely something there to tickle your taste buds!

I have been on the go a lot lately but I still manage, and these are the perfect travel companion!

Sending you love through (plant-based/vegan) food, as always!
I am obsessed with food as you'll surely see, and I am a strong believer in the power it has within it, and the ability it has to heal us! I aim to inspire through my recipes and posts and hope to connect with you here, through your heart. Some say the way to the heart is through the stomach, I 100% agree with that theory ;)

Haha well that's exactly what I would want so, success ;)

Chocolate and peanut butter? I am in!!

@heart-to-heart I have a serious problem with these peanut butter hearts!

It's that you haven't made it for me sooner.

Cause if you had.

I would know how good you are at making food - that is bad.

AND,

When I say, bad. I mean Michael Jackson BAD!

You know- how he started to look real bad at the end of his life...

Now get in my brain mouth!
